. i think that's what we need to do. obama and romney came close to it. they touched on it i should say. there was one common ground they found, which may form a newspaper, the times dismissed as meaningless. well, it's not meaningless. if you're going to change the way because people commit gun violence, not the guns themselves. i do get the behavior that leads people to resort to guns in troubled neighborhoods of mercedes. a new yorker community cards people townspeople stash and fire hydrants were strictly and. you could do something about that. you could pass a law, for instance, that post a heavy penalty on using a community going. in 2006 race the minimum sentence for having a loaded illegal gun to three and a half years. i think you could rate even higher. that might make it clear to people who provide guns illegally to people who can't buy them because their names are on that list in washington and west virginia, and ics list. >> host: that's the list access when you do a background check. >> guest: right. often criminals get around not thanking somebody else today going for

romney's economic policies. a good friend of the show. jean, let me start with you. tax increases on people making more than 250,000 a year. let's use that as a number. it might be 400,000, it might be half a million. it might be a million. let's take $250,000. if you increase taxes, the marge nalt tax rate from 35% to 39.6% on that group of people, does it hurt the economy? >> i'm going to use estimates from the congressional budget office. a nonpartisan score keeper for congress. they found if you let the bush tax cuts on higher earners, it would boost the economy almost as much as if you let everybody's bush tax cuts stay in place. there's little difference on how much would you help the economy if you let the bush tax cuts stay in place for everyone or for most people. in that sense it sounds like it wouldn't have a huge effect on the economic recovery. having said that i think if you asked most economists and tax experts, all things being equal is it better to have lower rates or higher rates, they would say probably better to have lower rates. all things aren't equal. there is
